Top 15 Open Source Tools For Windows Admins
“You might imagine that the best place to go for improving your Microsoft server-side experience is to the mothership itself. In many cases, you would be right.
But the truth is there are a meaningful number of open source tools that go above and beyond what Microsoft has to offer in support of Windows Server, Exchange, SQL, and SharePoint.
Many of these alternatives provide — for free — more powerful capabilities than what you’d get with third-party retail products.
Microsoft itself has acknowledged this fact, facilitating the availability of open source tools for Microsoft admins through its CodePlex site. Microsoft, too, can be relied on for a few clear winners when it comes to free tools.
All in all, it’s never been a better time to experiment with open source tools in your Microsoft environment. From networking troubleshooting to security to performance analysis, we’ve compiled a list of the top open source tools for your Windows-based systems.”
